Most Spurs fans will be grateful for an early weekend kick off as a chance to get back to the football after a mixed week at the club. Watford will host us in our fourth round FA Cup tie and one player almost certain to feature is the versatile Jake Livermore.
Jake has appeared regularly in the cup competitions, even filling in at right back against Cheltenham and has therefore underlined his potential to the club in more than one area of the pitch. Injuries in midfield to Tom Huddlestone, Sandro and Scott Parker have also seen him feature heavily in the league but if things had been different, the player could have been playing elsewhere this weekend.
“I had the opprtunity to move out on loan’” Livermore told Talksport this morning. “It was mine and the gaffer’s decision to stay and sit it out.”
Livermore went on to add that he has benefited hugely from playing around the likes of Parker, Modric and Bale and that can only be a good thing for himself and for Spurs. It’s still early days but signs are looking good for the Spurs future of Jake Livermore.
